Halogen bulbs should not be touched with bare hands as the oils of the skin will significantly shorten the life of the bulb or cause it to shatter.
Purchased this and it was great until it just quit working. It lasted 3 weeks total so dont bother
The most long last light bulb I ever used. I bought my first light two years ago and I am still using it right now. And it is as hot as before. The previous basking lights I used only last 6 months in average. But this one, it’s two years already and it still works just fine.
This feels really sturdy. Installed easy. Holds up to splashing well. It's perfect for my turtle.
I do recommend this highly because it works! It’s better than nothing
I can't speak for myself, but Franklin REALLY likes the new lighting!
I had this bulb installed for just under 3 weeks when it burned out. I have had this problem before with these bulbs where they will arrive broken or stop working shortly after use. Bummed but at least this one did not explode over the tank.
I love these bulbs and so do my turtles. Fast shipping and awesome prices.
After getting my turtle from my cousin I didn’t know much on basking. When his normal lamp broke I wasn’t sure what I should do, so I looked on Chewy and saw this lamp and ordered it along with a fixture. I began turning it on and off during the day, but since I got my new basking area from him month later I just leave it on since it is placed over the tank. I’m currently writing this an entire year after I got, and it’s still going strong. Looking forward to buying one again.
Every time I’ve gotten one of these lamps, it either has had a shorter-than-promised life or just hasn’t worked at all.
The glass bulb bursted. It broke over my tank the glass killed 5 of the feeder fish in my turtles tank. I think it was a faulty bulb or lamp that I also bought on chewy
